Everything is Bigger in Texas – Except a Legislative Per Diem
Effective March 17, 2011, the amount triggering detailed reporting for food, beverages, transportation, lodging, and entertainment will drop to $90.
The trigger is set by statute at 60% of the amount of the legislative per diem.
Due to the legislative per diem decreasing from $168 for the 2009 session to $150 for the 2011 session, the trigger has decreased from $100.80 to $90.
